cuLearn is Carleton’s electronic learning management system. Once you log in to cuLearn, you can see a list of your courses, current and past. Here professors can provide you with resources, like links to readings, outlines for your assignments, potential questions for your tests, and you can even hand in your assignments online and have the professor display your marks, all directly on the website.
There are two ways to log into cuLearn. The first is to click on the cuLearn button, on the left side of the screen once you’ve logged in via the Current Students page. Alternatively, the faster way to log in is by going to https://culearn.carleton.ca, which is a direct login to cuLearn.
Once you log in, you will see a list of the courses you’ve currently registered in. If you registered in a course but you don’t see it here – don’t fret. This usually means that the professor has not activated the course yet for cuLearn, or perhaps they do not plan to have a page for the course at all. If they tell you that they’ve created a page for the course, but you don’t see it, check with your fellow classmates – if they can’t see it either, there’s something wrong with the site and you should tell your prof. If it’s just you…visit the cuLearn support page and see if you can get some answers from tech support.
Okay, so everything works fine, and you can see your courses. Now what? If you click on one of your courses, you will be taken to that course’s page. Under each “Topic” heading, you prof might list the readings and assignments for that week, or perhaps they will have all of the resources under one folder, at the top of the page (they will usually tell you where to look). If you scroll down, on the left side of the screen you can find links to a page where you can submit assignments (if your prof is asking for online submissions), and your marks for that course.
